Please tell me, could a thyroid pill make the throat sore?

No: Neither thyroid hormone (for hypothyroidism ) nor Methimazole or ptu (propylthiouracil) (for hyperthyroidism) cause a sore throat, although ptu (propylthiouracil) and Methimazole can lower the white blood cell count which can increase the risk if infection.
